CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES OF FAITH COMMUNITY (OR THE LACK THEREOF)
Aspen, LInda & Christine

Jan 21 - Childhood experiences of faith community (or the lack thereof)
Service Facilitators: Stewardship Committee (Aspen, LInda & Christine)

Join us in a continuing reflection on how our childhood experiences of faith community (including not having one,) shape our experiences and choices today.   This service is built on the foundation that was laid with the Nov 26th service that featured how what we learned about money as a child influences our thinking and actions.  We will explore the possibilities that develop when we claim ownership of our current path as individuals and as a community.

EMBRACING THE WHOLE
Mel Horvath-Lucid

Jan 28 - Embracing the whole
Speaker: Mel Horvath-Lucid

How does your story/perspective inform your ability to connect with others compassionately? 

Join Mel as she explores how our ability to dare greatly, embracing the many aspects of ourselves, increases our ability to connect and accept others.  "Those who expect moments of change to be comfortable and free of conflict, have not learned their history." Joan Wallach Scott.

Mel Horvath-Lucid is the Director of Congregational Life & Learning at Unitarian Congregation of Guelph and past Unicamp camp director.

IMBOLC

Feb 4 - Imbolc

Service Facilitator: Janice Canning

Imbolc is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of spring. It is a time to celebrate the awakening of the land. Beneath the snow lie the seeds of spring's growth. In this service we will celebrate that which lies hidden and dormant within. What is getting ready to burst out? In the spirit of joy and celebration, get ready to have some fun finding out!

Janice Canning is the lay chaplain of the UCG. She is intuitive and empathetic, a mystic, and experienced in strong relationship building between communities. A builder of bridges she welcomes diversity and challenges herself to support and grow spiritually within community.
